I have a possible problem with the memory i have installed in my pc
It's a pentium 4 1,7ghz with 2 256 memories called rambus and nvidia 5200 agp.
My operating system is xp professional service pack 2
and my problem is that when ever i open my pc and get to the desktop
it appears red vertical lines over the images and the desktop icons.
That problem aplies only when im on 16 bit depth of color,
when i go to 32 bit the scanlines dissapear with some of my desktop icons
and the icons in the start bar. I know that it is not the nvidia card because i
have used newer models and the red lines uppear even in games.
Any advise would be useful.

ps: sorry for my english

i forgot to mention that i have tried both lcd and crt panels
i believe its either the motherboard or the memory.

my guess is that it may be a bad coincidence with the video card you have. and the only suggestion i have is to make sure its drivers are updated all the way

So the problem occurs with multiple monitors and multiple video cards right? And it even showed up during the memory test?

I'd be leaning toward the motherboard then.
